About

Bio

I grew up in Orange County, California. After med school at GW, and residency at Harbor-UCLA in internal med, I entered active duty in the Air Force and was an internist at Eglin AFB in Florida for 4 years. Since 1998 I am in private practice in Newport Beach, CA and in concierge med since 2007.
